Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu today said the Prime Ministers Museum instills pride in every citizen of the nation by offering an immersive experience of the country’s successful democratic journey and its socio-economic transformation since Independence.
Naidu, along with his spouse Usha Naidu, visited the museum (Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya) located in the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) and spent 90 minutes keenly watching various components of the audio-visual presentations on India’s journey to the present.
Writing his comments in the Visitors’ Book, Naidu said; “The museum showcases and honours the diversity in our national leadership and thereby sends the message of inclusiveness, which is vital for a vibrant democracy like ours.”
He wrote: “This exhibition is bound to inspire every citizen through the immersive experience it offers of the transformation of our nation from fighting poverty and illiteracy to scaling new heights in space exploration.”
Naidu noted that the elevating experience the modern, technology-based museum offers to the visitors is “certain to enhance his or her pride for the nation and prepares them for the giant steps the nation will take in the coming years to reach the top among the comity of nations.”
Naidu recounted his experience at the Sangrahalaya in a Facebook post and urged every citizen to visit it for inspiration and to be filled with pride.
The Vice President was particularly thrilled by the simulated helicopter ride into the future of India encasing the extension of various mega infrastructure projects like National Highways, long bridges and tunnels, Smart Cities, and other projects in progress in various parts of the country.
NMML Executive Council Chairman Nriprendra Mishra explained various components of the Prime Ministers Museum and answered a few queries of the Vice President. The museum was opened to the public on the 14th of April this year.
